A Mass Exodus From Pacha

2013 seems set to be a very different year in Pacha. I have already blogged recently about Tiesto not holding a residency with Pacha in 2013 with Tiesto claiming its too much to do it every year.

Yesterday Defected announced that they to will be leaving Pacha to set up camp elsewhere. Simon Dunmore said the following

Ibiza’s clubbing landscape, however, is rapidly evolving and these are exciting times. Continuing a tried and trusted formula would have been the easiest option but next summer will be our tenth on the island and our achievements last summer give us a great platform to look at the new opportunities available to us. So, to conclude, we will not be at Pacha next summer and shall announce our plans for 2013 early in the New Year.

It sounds like they have some exciting plans, and the fact that they have announced they are not in Pacha signals to me that they plans are probably confirmed.

The above are stories straight from the horse’s mouth. However, when i was first reading about this on Mixmag, they threw the following in at the end

There are also rumours circulating that Cadenza and Pete Tong are very likely to be leaving, along with David Guetta, Tiesto and Eric Prydz weekly nights possibly relocating to an alternative club.

Now, i find it hard now days to remember who played in which clubs in which years, but im pretty sure Eric Prydz did have a night in Pacha last season.

Take from the above what you will, i personally think that if five out of the seven promoters from one club are upping sticks and leaving all at the same time, then there has got to be trouble from within.

I could see Cadenza on the terrace of Amnesia or in Space, i could See Pete Tong anywhere and everywhere! I wouldn’t be surprised to see a collaboration of nights filling Privilege.

Time will tell, but it gets the brain thinking on a cold Friday afternoon!

Defected @ Pacha 2012

I keep using the phrase, but Defected is another one of the Ibiza Old Guard, its kept going and its kept being a success, id put it down to the lineups being different each year, new and old can easily share a lineup and the nights just work.

This year you can head over and see the likes of The Shapeshifters, Bob Sinclar, Sandy Rivera etc… It all takes place in Pacha and tickets start at €38 early season going up to €48 for the rest of the season.
